Prayer Points For The Week: Sep 11 - Sep 17, 2022


THANKSGIVING:  Psa 67:5 “Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.” Give God thanks, praise and glory for all He has done for you, your family, the Church and Nigeria; for His marvelous attributes and attitude towards us.

REPENTANCE: Also, ask God for mercy and forgiveness for all of your sins, your family’s, the Church and Nigeria; pray for grace to turn and live in obedience; that our land may be healed (2 Chron. 7.14).

FOCUS:  Pausing and Taking a Moment to Appreciate God



  • Psa_89:1“I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.” Please repent of every way we have not shown enough gratitude and appreciation to God for all His marvelous deeds and kindness shown to us personally, to the Church, and to Nigeria as a nation. Ask for grace for greater gratitude henceforth…. Then praise Him lavishly for all you can remember: with your mouth, make known His faithfulness.
  • China evolved from over 200 years of bloody wars; Israel from over 35 years of brutal battles (from age 80 of Joshua to age 115, besides the wars fought before crossing the Jordan). Many other nations worldwide emerged through wars of conquests. Nigeria was created with little or no wars, just a few skirmishes between British imperialists and resisting locals. Rather than appreciate the potent country we have without protracted bloodshed, many have serially condemned it as a “forced marriage”, “the mistake of 2014” etc. Let us repent…Then thank God for the potent gift called Nigeria
  • God has dealt with Nigeria in many ways like Israel. For instance, by the unseen hand of God, Nigeria gained Independence on October 1, 1960. That was the precise Day of Atonement in Israel in 1960 – the day ordained in the Bible for proclaiming Jubilee and liberty to captives. There are diverse other examples of His grace and guiding hand. Let us thank Him.
  • Luke 12:48 “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required” God has not only given Nigeria diverse and vast natural resources but has invested heavily in the gospel in Nigeria, making Nigeria a predominantly Christian nation though we allow others to propagate lies. God’s investments include Pa S G Elton who was sent from Britain and spent 50 years of his life laying a foundation in Nigeria, building up men. It also includes the Sudan Interior Mission that spread the gospel across the North East and other Northern areas that we have now allowed to be massively eroded by Jihadists. Thank God for His heavy investment and for making Nigeria heavily Christian.
  • Psa_49:20 “Man that is in honour, and understands not, is like the beasts that perish.” God used Nigeria to end apartheid, stall the global spread of gay rights / homosexuality endorsement legislations, give Africa and the black race a voice, even in our presently very low estate. Let us thank and praise Him
  • God has repeatedly fought seen and unseen battles for the Church. When Christians ignorantly voted M K O Abiola and another Muslim en masse, God allowed it to be frustrated. He has similarly cut other potential Jihadists short and uprooted them from office. Let us thank Him
  • God did not let us walk blind into the current Islamic terror. He sent a prophet from Germany, Pstr Bosun Emmanuel to warn the Church so heavily; but we chose to wise in our own eyes. Yet God has not abandoned us to utter destruction. Only recently, like in Egypt against Pharaoh, God allowed floods to chase Boko Haram out of their very headquarters, the Sambissa Forest, with 70 reportedly drowned!! Psa_34:3“O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together”
  • Pray for God to have mercy on us, deliver us from corruption and usher us into our divine possibilities
  • Pray other prayers for current national issues as your have observed or are burdened to pray. Pray also for the ongoing political transition process that there be no hijack, and the next leader shall be of God.
  • SPECIAL PRAYER: Lord have mercy on Leah Sharibu and all others abducted and still in the hands of their captors. Stretch forth Your hand and set free. (d) Defend Your children from Jihad in S/Kaduna, Jos and other Christian territories (c.) Have mercy of IDPs and enable them return to their homes.
